Sports broadcaster Bruce McAvaney and his TV producer wife Anne Johnson are moving to Paddington — but will not be staying for too long.

They’re downsizing from the recently listed Adelaide coastal home they have owned for two decades.

The couple are renting in Paddington as both begin work at Channel 7’s Eveleigh offices, ahead of covering the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year for the network.

Their Sydney rental search was somewhat dictated by their dog Frankie.

Proximity to walks in Centennial Park was a priority. Of the 34 rentals currently on the leasing market in Paddington, only eight are signalled pet friendly.

Paddington will be a change of pace for the empty-nesters, who have lived on the beach.

Their former four-bedroom Adelaide home in Glenelg South, southwest of the CBD, sits right on the beach. The couple will still own in the area, having bought an apartment up the road in the Ei8ht development, which is slated for completion next year.

McAvaney is known as Mr Olympics having commentated on every summer Olympics since Moscow in 1980. He has also commentated on 10 AFL grand finals over his four-decade broadcasting career.
